I get the following error when I try to run the Orchard.Web project from Visual Studio 2012 using IIS Express. It works fine when I use Cassini.

The steps I took were the following:
  • Download from CodePlex Downloads page
  • Unzip the file
  • Open Orchard.sln in VS2012
  • Set Orchard.Web as the StartUp Project
  • Ctrl+F5 to run

This is probably a permission issue. What permissions your user has on the Orchard folder? I'm not sure about this, but probably the user running the site in this case is not yours, but IIS_IUSRS, so you could try giving permissions to that.

I've had the same issue, as has a co-worker. We ended up using "Visual Studio Development Server" since IIS Express doesn't work, and there's no log output or suspicious exceptions that pointed me in the direction of the problem.
